I had a heart attack in December 2011 and I am taking Metoprolol twice a day and lisinopril once a day. I was wondering if anyone "out there" has ever come off their heart meds? I know about the warning not to discontinue them suddenly, which I definitely won't do, but I'm hoping to be able to look forward to being off them at some point. I took Effient for a year after my stent and then cardiologist said I could stop, but he essentially says I'll be on the other stuff forever! I don't want that! Be assured I won't do anything without checking with a doctor, just wanted to know if there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
